Discuss the major factors that brought latinos

Identify and discuss the major factors that brought Latinos/as into the United States during two historical periods covered thus far: (a) from roughly 1848 through 1945 and (a) from around 1945 through the 1980s. In particular, for the 1848-1945 period, identify and discuss the key factors driving Mexican migration to the United States. For the 1945-1980s period, select three Latino/a populations—one (1) from the Caribbean region (Cuba, Puerto Rico or Dominican Republic); one (1) from Central America (El Salvador, Guatemala or Nicaragua); and either Panama or Colombia—and compare and contrast their immigration, settlement and adjustment patterns using the ‘context of reception’ framework.
